I’m going to beg for rainy day advice from y’all. We’re dying here in Los Angeles.
Today is the fourth consecutive day of rain with at least another three on the horizon, and we’re not quite sure what to do with ourselves.
Alexander was supposed to go to a laser tag party this morning, but he woke up with a cough and feeling a little crummy. I seriously debated sending him a little bit sick, because Laser Tag is a place where they can run around like hooligans and get some energy out.
I thought the other moms might get bugged if I sent a sick kid. Understand that I didn’t keep him home because it’s the right thing to do, I kept him home because I was afraid of being ostracized. Do not mistake me for being a good citizen.
Even though Alexander felt a little crummy, he still had plenty of energy.
We’re a tender crew. Us Angelinos aren’t really sure what to do on the second rainy day. We know how to handle one rainy day, a day indoors never killed anyone, but asking us to go three days, or a week indoors pushes us all past our breaking points.
I don’t want to see another movie.
I don’t want to go to the gym, again.
I’m not interested in museums.
I’m tired of telling the kids that they shouldn’t use sleeping bags on the stairs and pretend it’s a luge.
I don’t know how to fill the coming days.
If you live anywhere that has actual weather can you please fill in the blanks. I need help.
